Classic Films for the Classic Childhood: Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory


Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory: The children in this movie, along with dancing Oompahs, clearly lay out vices that should be watched like vanity, or gluttony, or judgment. What’s clearer is that Charlie is only able to win because he doesn’t give in to the wide array of vices. A good lesson that can be shared multiple times, multiple ways.

We are the Makers of Music, We are the Dreamers of Dreams

The best part however is that Charlie dreams. He knows he wants the golden ticket, and believes he will get it- so he does. He wants to win more than anyone else- and he won’t let things distract him (not the chocolate river, or the tv, or anything!). He’s focused. He Believes.

Nothing can replace the power of Belief in your Dreams. Share that.
